The aim of this project is to investigate how the psychosocial work environment, psychological health, sickness absence and disability pensioning are related to each other. We are especially interested to study whether and to what extend

  • the psychosocial work environment affects risk of reduced psychological health (including both common mental disorders, such as depression, and anxiety, but also symptoms of reduced psychological functioning and well-being, such as fatigue and burnout)
  • reduced psychological health increase risk of long-term sickness absence and disability pensioning
  • psychosocial work environment and reduced psychological health moderate each other's effect on risk of sickness absence and disability pensioning
  • the effect of the work environment on sickness absence and disability pension is mediated by reduced psychological health
